of the sandy hook tragedy. >> and you will all be able to watch that on cnn. congress will have to approve the most controversial ideas in president obama's planses to cut gun violence. those are the same lawmakers that have trouble doing anything lately. dana bash joins us now from capitol hill. dana, how are you doing? >> reporter: i'm well. cnn's deidra walsh has learned that the obama administration intends to use the campaign infrastructure in order to galvanize support for the gun control measures he will formally announce tomorrow and talking to members of congress, even democrats, they are going to need it. noumpb, connecticut, is now represented by a freshman democrat determined to ban the weapons used to massacre her young constituents. >> it's my job to advocate for my community and all of these other communities. i'll be working with leadership to get the votes we need. >> reporter: but her burst of fresh energy to pass the new gun control proposals is already colliding with political reality. listen to how the democrat who runs the senate is. >> the numbers around the country,
the the right thing and representing the people who elected you. >> reporter: mary snow, cnn, new york. >>> i'm joe johns. thanks for joining us. cnn newsroom continues now with ashlee banfield. >> we went over the fiscal cliff. yep at midnight and then just a couple hours later, the senate came up with a solution. now it's off to the house. the house has to sign off. they will get back to work this afternoon. what's in the deal? well, it starts with the new income tax threshold. those folks agreed to let the taxes go up but only on the family who is make over $450,000 in combined income. the itemized deductions will also be capped at $300,000 for families. and the estate tax, that was a big sticking point for lawmakers, and now the tax rate goes up to 40% for estates that are valued over $5 million. so if you're under $5 million, you skated there too. other key points are an extension of the long-term unemployment benefits. the renewal of tuition and child care tax credits and then something called the doc fix. it reimburses doctors who take medicare patients. and what about the automatic sp

a strong column on cnn.com. >> thank you. >> we have stacked the deck against ourselves even when we create a fiscal cliff as a way to force real, meaningful action, we choose to fail because in an odd way, failure is much easier to explain. just blame the other guy. success, on the other hand, comes with responsibility and no one wants that. so where do we end up going from here? >> well, that's the problem. we all want someone to blame, which is what we're doing here. and so republicans, you can blame them for their intrans ji dense on taxes, um blame the democrats for not doing any entitlement reform deduction. i believe you can blame the president for playing small ball when he should be playing a larger game there and maybe he will down the road. but if you actually succeed and were to do a big package and were to do tax reform, as people say they want to do, then you'd have to take responsibility for that. then you'd have to go home to the voters and say, i made the tough decisions. you might not like them but please vote for me again and members of congress are sort of afraid to do t
with spending cuts. let's go live to cnn white house correspondent brianna keilar. >> reporter: president obama stating very clearly today that he will not negotiate deficit reduction, tax increases and spending cuts attached to the debt ceiling. this of course does follow that bruising battle the year before last, where he did negotiate on the issue, and the u.s. nearly went to the brink of default. he said that congress has to pay the bills that it's already racked up. >> you don't go out to dinner and then, you know, eat all you want and then leave without paying the check. and if you do, you're breaking the law. and congress should think about it the same way that the american people do. you don't -- now, if congress want, to have a debate about maybe we shouldn't go out to dinner next time, maybe we should go to a more modest restaurant, that's fine. that's the debate that we should have. >> reporter: in this press conference that was called last minute in the east room, president obama said he will negotiate a deal on deficit reduction but not, as he put it, quote, with a gun to the head
with it. the first piece of unfinished business is a aid package for the victims of sandy. our cnn's contributor john avalon and margaret hoover are with me. first my question is, is there any reason to think this new batch is going to be any different than the old batch? >> yes, there is. >> i'm so glad. >> this is a historically diverse house of representatives, unprecedented numbers of women, six openly gale members of the house of representatives two females vets who have been in battle, combat vets from the iraq war and afghanistan. just an extraordinary amount of diversity. the problem from a republicans' perspective is all that have diversity is on the democrat ecside. so the house looks different. what you're hearing is a lot of them came to washington this time, because they were told they want a congress that can work together. they were elected among historically low approval ratings in the house of representatives and they know their job is to get something done. there's a new coalition of democrats, maybe 55 of them, 14 blue dogs left so hopefully democrats who aren't

for admitting needed workers. cnn chief congressional correspondent dana bash and cnn chief white house correspondent jessica yellin are working the story. dana, the tone was pretty optimistic up on capitol hill today. >> it sure was but, you know, we have seen this movie before, you and i, wolf, and a lot of other people watching this issue go kind of up and down with the partisan wins. but this is something that is different this time. because of something very simple. and that is what happened in the last election to republicans. particularly mitt romney with the latino voters. he lost big time. and that's why when i asked senator mccain and others who were standing right here where i'm standing, half a dozen years ago, why this is different, that's why they answered that way. listen to this. senator kennedy stood with you and, senator mccain, you were standing with him, and he said 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system. we must strike while the iron is hot. what makes you think, why is this year different? >> elections. elections. >> the republican party is losing the suppo
.com/carolcnn. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >>> thanks, carol. and hi, everybody. nice to have you with us. it's 11:00 in the east. and now come the funerals and the arrests. the grief and incrimination, all of it in the wake of a terrible nightclub inferno in brazil. more than 200 people dead and one american says these horrific fires will continue to happen until authorities insist on sprinklers. we are also watching the border at this hour. our border, and capitol hill. and what could be a breakthrough in a hugely divisive debate. that's where we start this hour, immigration. specifically, immigration reform. it has been a very tough slog, even before the political landscape turned so incredibly toxic. but now this bipartisan group of senators on your screen, they're unveiling a wide ranging compromise that includes a so-called path to citizenship for roughly 11 million immigrants who are in this country illegally. the senators are due to brief reporters this afternoon. give us some of the details. all of this one day before president obama unveils his own ideas in l
is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra plans an aggressive campaign and can point to what happened in 1994 when president bill clinton signed the last assault weapons ban into law. democrats lost both houses of congress to republicans. >> these become the only republican candidate in indiana with an f rating from the nra. >> last year the nra proved it was willing to go after the gop as well, running this ad against dick lugar. the white house appears to be prepared for the fight to come. after biden spent days meeting with interest groups, the latest being video game makers, the vice president doesn't seem to be in the mood to take on the entertainment industry. >> are democrats as nervous about the nra as they used to be? >> no, they ar
. that does it for me. "cnn newsroom" continues with brooke baldwin. >>> in just a couple of minutes, a group of senators from both sides of the aisle set to announce a compromise on immigration. but one of the questions is, will it mesh with the president's announcement that will come tomorrow? i'm brooke baldwin. just in to cnn, a sudden about face from the boy scouts of america. we are now getting word that the group may drop the ban on gay scouts and scout leaders. chris lawrence, straight to you here, which obviously this would be a huge reversal. to be clear, this is not a done deal. what do you know? >> brooke, it is big news. it potentially has the possibility of affecting hundreds of thousands of families all across america. cub scouts, boy scouts, and their parents. scout leaders, everyone would be affected by this change in policy, if it goes through. here is some background. cnn has been going back and forth with the national organization on some other issues, and we just learned basically that they are considering reversing that ban and opening up the national organization to the
're in "the situation room." >>> this is cnn breaking news. >> let's get to the breaking news. a deadly terrorist attack on a gas field in eastern algeria near the libyan border. some of the more than 40 hostages seized have been released but a number of them are still being held, including americans. the state department confirms those americans are affiliated with the oil giant bp. let's bring in elise labott. the latest information you're getting is what? >> well, at first these assailants, these affiliated-al qaeda militants tried to storm a bus, these bp employees headed for an air field in nearby eastern algeria, that was not successful. then they stormed the compound of this living -- the living quarters of this air field and they took about 40 hostages. we understand that about seven americans -- we're not sure. it could be a little bit more, a little less -- are being held as well as britain, japan, norway, and ir labd. >> do we know who these americans are, what they were doing there precisely? >> they were all working in some capacity for bp. it's a very remote area and that'
of much of the sports world, even beyond. our cnn national correspondent deborah feyerick reports. >> reporter: for manti te'o, every game, every victory led to this, january's national championships shaped and inspired in many ways by the personal tragedy months earlier of the 21-year-old college football hero. >> when i lost my girlfriend and my grandma, that was possibly the hardest time of my life. >> reporter: the day was september 11th, 2012. te'o learned his beloved grandmother had died. hours later, a call that his girlfriend who had apparently told him that summer she had been in a car accident and diagnosed with cancer, she had also died. >> you know, the love of my life, the last thing she said to me was, i love you. >> reporter: te'o dedicated the season to them both, sending white roses and skipping the funeral to play football, as he promised. everyone, opposing teams, fans rallied around the hawaii native. >> to see the whole stadium, both notre dame and michigan fans wears leis, you know, that's where i just looked up and said, my father, you're the man. >> reporte
. >> the motion is adopted without objection to reconsider is laid on the table. >> reporter: but sources tell cnn right after the toxic fiscal cliff vote the house speak joern cliff vote the house speak joe n janua yanked the bill. >> reporter: the reason? cnn told the speaker he worried it was bad internal politics for him to allow a vote on $60 million after a long day of getting pommelled for spending. >> on a political chest board of politics our people were played last night as a pawn. >> i called the speaker four times last night after 11:20 and he did not take my calls. it is why the american people hate congress. it's why they hate them. >> reporter: and this meeting that just wrapped up really lasted a short time, maybe 20 minutes tops, wolf. it was clear that the house speaker knew he had to clean it up and clean it up fast and he had a plan ready to go to take the votes to reassure the republicans that were devastated by sandy. >> do you have doubt john boehner will be the speaker of the house? >> reporter: when it comes to these republicans who were clearly very angry, i asked one mic
're live on cnn, do you have a deal? >> happy new year. >> house republicans staged a new year's day revolt to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> america went over the fiscal cliff at midnight, but we are still waiting to see if it will be a hard fall or a soft landing. >> despite some hopeful signs very early this morning, we are still in a freefall. >> we have news and that is that the house republicans have decided just to take up the clean senate bill. >> we're on the threshold here of passing the passage and i think we may have just made it at 214. >> joining us now are two reporters who work the marble halls in covering the story. cnn senior congressional correspondent dana bash and jonath jonathan weisman who covers for "new york times." what was it like trying to get information around the clock during all that late-night craziness in that mad house? >> it was not easy. i tell you, you're really being manipulated because you're getting strategic leaks and getting calls and then you'd have these moments of just pure blackout, nothing. no information at all and you were just, you know, workin
president, do you have a deal? mr. environment, we're live on cnn, do you have a deal? senator reid, how do you feel? got to love live tv. there you go. >> he kept saying happy new year. and he had a smile on his face, so i assume he thinks he's going to have a happy new year. i'm sure that he did not necessarily think he would be spending new year's eve with you, dana. >> no, i'm sure he didn't. and i can tell you that a lot of us up here are -- you know, we like each other, but spending new year's this way is not exactly our way of a fun way to ring in the new year. certainly, that was interesting. the vice president is a happy guy. he always smiles, particularly when he's with the cameras and he knows this is an important time. the fact that he and harry reid and there were other members of the democratic leadership walk by this camera from where harry reid's office is, which is right behind our camera, the fact they decided to walk by the cameras clearly, to me, was a show of unity. they didn't have to do that. there are other ways to get back there where they would not be seen on any c
. their thinking is crazy and skewed. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me today. cnn newsroom continues with ashleigh banfield. >>> actually one month after president obama vowed to use "whatever power his office holds to prevent more tragedies like newtown" he is about to say exactly what that means. in a little less than an hour he'll take the wraps off a series of proposals that go beyond gun control. he's expected to push for a new ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips. he wants to close the so-called gun show loophole, that involving the background checks. but he's also expected to talk about other things like mental health car health care and boosting school security. he will be joined by his vice president, joe biden who compiled these ideas after talks with various stakeholders. and for good measure they invited along some of the children who wrote them after the massacre at sandy hook. cnn's special live coverage begins at 45 minutes past the hour. while we wait for the president to address us on these issues, i wanted to bring in our white house correspondent, da
. if the gain is what's expected or more, you could see it catapult to 14,000. >>> "cnn newsroom" starts right now with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you very much, carol costello. nice for having you with us today. hi, everybody, i'm ashleigh banfield. it's 11:00 on the east coast. we've got a very busy hour. we want to start with you in alabama where a 5-year-old, special needs boy is still being held in an underground bunker by an old man whose got a gun. >>> and in washington, at this hour, president obama's pick for defense secretary is on the defensive. you're going to see all of this playing out live. >>> also, deadly storms and springlike tornadoes give way to a deep freeze wild weather from the deep south all the way up to new england. i want to take you to capitol hill now. and a former senator who was loved and admired by colleagues on both sides of the aisle, that was until he was tapped by president obama to head the pentagon. chuck hagel is a little over 90 minutes into a senate confirmation hearing. but he's generally expected to survive. but if you remember that virtual lovefest

in the "cnn newsroom." i'm wolf blitzer in washington. we're getting immediate reaction from republican leadership to what the president of the united states and the vice president just announced over at the white house. dana bash is our chief congressional correspondent. dana, are you getting some reaction from the speaker? >> reporter: that's right. the speaker's spokesman we should note saying the house committees of jurisdiction will review the recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will take a look at that. so that really undersores what we have been reporting for the past several days, even weeks that the house republicans are effectively a sideshow right now. certainly what they are going to feel ultimately if there is an ultimately will matter, but right now the focus is on the senate and is on the president's fellow democrats. and so much of what he was saying and focusing on, and will focus on in the next few days, is going to be on people in his own party. that really is something that i think is important to underscore. couple things here. first of all, there wa

future? cnn's mary snowis joining us. what's the latest on her condition? >> wolf frk we haven't heard from her doctors since they let us know that she was making excellent progress. an expert in blood clots said if unrelated the clots could be serious but the fact that it's being addressed is a good sign. on the day when sect hillary clinton was supposed to be getting ready to go back to work, she spent another day at the hospital. doctors discovered a blood clot in the vein between the brain and skull behind the right ear. they say she did not suffer a stroke or neurological damage. a doctor not involved in secretary clinton's case has treated cases like hers and calls them rare. what does this mean for the future? >> i think her future is as good as her past. she should recover from this. will be treated with blood thinners. i can't say how long because i don't know all of the circumstances but certainly minimum of three to six month, may well could be longer. in some rare cases, could be lifelong but many patients are on blood thinners for life. she should recover fully and get bac
went over the cliff. the gop caucus just met to try and figure out its next move. cnn has learned that house speaker john boehner put two options on the table. amend the senate bill with a package of spending cuts, or bring up the senate-passed measure for a so-called up or down vote in the house. i'm going to ask dana to explain to us what an up or down vote means. today, the number two republican in the house, majority leader eric cantor flatly told reporters i do not support this bill. >> -- looking for the best path forward. >> here's part of the problem for at least some lawmakers. the congressional budget office, a nonpartisan group, said today the senate-backed legislation will add nearly $4 trillion to federal deficits over a decade, but keep in mind that is relative to where deficits would have been if congress had let all the bush tax cuts expire, which was an option that virtually no one wanted. so is there life left in the senate's proposal or have we fallen off the cliff for good or at least for a few days? joining me now is our senior congressional correspondent, dan
